This is a great recipe! Very easy and the result was delicious! The type of recipe you can alter easily depending on what you have in the fridge. I added a few more different vegetables last time I made it. It is now a firm favourite in my house!

I've made a few sausage and bean stews in my time, but this had so much depth to the sauce it was delicious and my family loved it!

Just made this following the recipe to the letter with mash & it was nice. Next time I'll definitely brown the sausages first & would be lovely with broccoli as a side as well as mash.

Love this! I had it with roast potatoes which was delicious but would probably have mash next time to soak up the fantastic smokey paprika sauce. Would also leave out the chorizo to reduce the calories a bit.

Lovely comfort food, with scrummy flavour. Served with mash. Big portion and lots left over for lunch.

So simple and so tasty - used cannelini beans instead and no need for a side dish. Perfect Saturday night comfort food!

Really good recipe, filled up my hubby, son's & son's mate a treat. I also browned the sausages under the grill, & only used 250g of chorizo to 600g pork sausages but the combo was v good. It fed 5 of us with plenty left for tea for 2 tomorrow!

a little squidge of tomato ketchup sweetened it ever so slightly and about 1/2 tsp of sugar helped the tomatoes

Works well and very easy to make or adapt. All recipes like these freeze very well.
Leave a day or two if you, and it is even better!

Made this the other night and it was yummy. Used vegetarian sausages instead (Quorn's pork and apple style) and they worked very well. I changed the beans around as i didn't have aduki beans. But all the flavours worked together and made it very satisfying! Will be cooking this again

This went down a treat with all the family. Didn't use chorizo sausages and left out the wine. First time I have used smoked paprika and it made such a difference.

Doubled up sausages, wine and tomatoes - not much left over though!! Very popular with whole family. Need strong tasting veg with it though - I opted for cauliflower and broccoli and mash. Used mixed beams as if was what i had in the cupboard. Left out fresh thyme.
Delicious for winter, comfort food.

Should have been 5 stars not 3

Just made this as as a winter warmer for a snowy Sunday lunch - it was really easy, ever so tasty and a huge hit! Served it with Yorkshire puds & a glass of red wine... Delish!

I fed four hungry growing girls this dish with mash and it went down wonderfully. A fabulous hearty winter-ish dish.

made this for a family meal on new years day. I used cider instead of chicken stock and cooked it in the slow cooker. Made a vegie version for my youngest daughter.

We loved this. I grilled the sausages first and did the rest in the pan, with the chorizo. Once it was all in I chucked the whole lot (inc sausages) into my slow cooker and left it there for a few hours. Dinner was delicious and we have some frozen for another time. Excellent.

This was delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, & it made enough for 4 hungry people at the first sitting. We had lots of sauce left over which froze well, just cooked more pork sausages & reheated the sauce second time around. Had it with mash & jacket potatoes & a selection of veg. I will certainly be adding this to our regular menu.
